Welcome to the inaugural installment of the Shutterstock Superstar feature. We asked Shutterstock subscribers to share some of their favorite design work they produced using our images. Our first Superstar is Joonas Paloheimo, a designer based in Finland.

Joonas: This is a background illustration from my portfolio. The illustrations won Silver at the Finnish Best of the Year 2009 competition!
